Ever wonder how we carry some of your favorite brands at such surprisingly low prices? Take a peek at how we do it.

We Love Surprise So Much, We Built a Store Around It

At Marshalls, we think life's better with surprises. That's why we deliver surprise in our stores, every day. Like.. did you know that no two stores are ever the same? Or every time you visit, there'll be fresh, exciting merchandise to explore? At Marshalls, your surprise is waiting.

In A Nutshell

We deliver great value on ever-changing selections of brand name, designer, and other high-quality fashions at prices generally 20%-60% below full-price retailers' (including department, specialty, and major online retailers) regular prices, on comparable merchandise, every day.

Real Brands, Real Savings, Really

Marshalls is an off-price retailer. For us, value is a combination of brand, fashion, price and quality. Unlike traditional retailers, we generally don't do promotions, sales, coupons, or other gimmicks – Just exciting merchandise at amazing prices, every single day!

We're Smart Shoppers, Just Like You

Our buyers are on the hunt throughout the year for the hottest brand name and designer fashions of the season for the entire family and home — from trendy tops to leather jackets, to booties and cross-body handbags, to bold ties and sneakers, to zip hoodies and educational toys, to graphic print pillows and designer fragrances.

We buy from all kinds of vendors: big brand names to boutique, designer labels, as well as up-and-coming labels and exciting gems from around the globe. We also have some merchandise manufactured for us to bring you exceptional fashion and quality at an amazing price. Our buyers choose many different colors, styles, fabrics, and materials so there are always lots of great choices for you.

Our buyers are opportunistic and entrepreneurial. So when a designer overproduces or other stores overbuy, we swoop in, negotiate the lowest possible price, and pass the savings on!

Never the Same Selection Twice

Unlike other types of retailers that buy seasonally, we have new brand name, designer, and other high-quality fashions arriving several times a week, with each delivery containing thousands of items. Our rapidly changing assortments create a surprising shopping experience that our customers love. So stop by often to see our latest designer finds, at spectacular savings!

If you love it, grab it! We don't hold replenishment stock in our back rooms and the store managers often don't even know what's coming until they throw open the delivery truck doors! That's what makes us so exciting to shop.

The amount we buy of each brand varies greatly—sometimes we buy a little and at other times, we may buy a lot. What matters is that we think our customers will love it!

No One Way We Buy

We take advantage of a wide variety of opportunities, which can include department store cancellations, a manufacturer making up too much product, or a closeout deal when a vendor wants to clear merchandise at the end of a season. These are just some of the ways we bring you tremendous value.

The majority of products we sell are brand name merchandise generally offered at prices 20%-60% below full-price retailers' (including department, specialty, and major online retailers) regular prices on comparable product. Most of our merchandise is fashionable, current season styles. A small percentage is past season, or timeless classics, which we also offer at amazing savings to you.

Some of our merchandise is manufactured for us and some we design, particularly when what we see in the marketplace isn't the right value for our customers, meaning the right combination of brand, fashion, price, and quality. For example, we work with artisans in India to create beautiful hand-crafted embellished mirrors and wooden accent pieces, we source amazing cashmere and merino wool from Italy, and we design soaps to be created in the United Kingdom, Portugal, and Australia. We are always seeking great quality and value all over the world!

Operating Stores So It's Always Easy to Say Yes.

Our stores are as flexible as we are. We have no walls between departments, so we can easily expand and contract merchandise categories to respond to the newest fashion trends, changing customers' tastes, seasonal merchandise, or opportunistic buys.

We love our bright, modern stores, and our lean, no-frills way of working helps us pass spectacular savings onto you. So, don't expect fancy extras in our stores – just amazing merchandise at fantastic prices.

All of this is what allows us to offer you a desirable and rapidly changing mix of high-quality merchandise, always at amazing values! So whatever your fashion style — classic, understated, eclectic, or super-trendy, we know that you will find something fun and at a great price every time you visit.
